Neetal and Saumil have chosen a very unique way to host a celebration. They’ve rented an amazing private estate in Wine Country for a whole week. With Help of Tejel from Ambiance by Tejel they’ve put together a beautiful wedding with only twelve guests. We felt as part of the family being there. It felt more like a vacation rather than assignment and photographing their amazing Indian wedding was pure joy. You can read more about the wedding on SAB.
“Love, Loyalty and Friendship” – that’s how Natalie and Geoff relationship can be summed up.
They’ve met at the wedding in St. Petersburg in Florida and a month later Natalie asked Geoff to be her date on another wedding. That was their official second date.
They may not have invented skype dating but they surely mastered it. When they first met, Geoff was in Cali and Natalie was in Illinois. They skyped endlessly for months between quick visits from Cali to Chi and from Chi to Cali. They have figured the long distance thing would help them know quickly if their relationship could stand the test of time. They shared meals together over skype, celebrated holidays, played games, and sometimes just sat and looked at one another. They laughed a lot.
Geoff proposed at a vegetarian restaurant on January 8th 2013 called Karyn’s on Green St. in Chicago.
